Ask Bear Grylls or anyone who has survived a serious scrape in the outdoors and they will say your brain is your most important survival tool. Your attitude, instincts and knowledge of the back-country are what will keep you alive when everything else fails. But to put those instincts to work building a shelter, starting a fire or finding food, that brain needs a sharp, dependable knife.
The Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro Fixed Blade combines Gerber’s decades of knife making experience with Bear Grylls’ survival skills to create a survival knife that’s everything you need and nothing more. It leaves clever to the other gear in your backpack because clever usually means fancy features and moving parts that can bend, break, jam or get lost when you need them most.
The 4.8-inch fine edge, drop-point blade can go straight from hacking firewood to delicately filleting a trout. Its premium grade stainless steel construction means you’ll never see rust or corrosion as you pull it from its sheath. The blade will also keep its edge longer between sharpening. With an updated full tang construction, you can be sure this is a tool that won’t fail you even after hard use.
At 13.7 ounces in weight and 10 inches in total length, this knife feels solid and balanced in the hand. A large, textured, rubberized handle gives you a solid grip in any condition and an oversized bolster where the handle meets the blade keeps your hand from slipping toward the blade as you lean into your cut.
Along with flawlessly performing all the essential duties of a knife, like slicing, chopping and filleting, this knife is packed with survival features. The stainless steel pommel at the base of the handle can serve as a hammer. With two holes in the handle, the knife can be lashed to a stick to create a spear. And the lanyard cord with emergency whistle helps you keep track of the knife and provides a loud emergency signal should potential rescuers be within earshot.
Just like the knife it protects, the sheath on the Ultimate Pro Fixed Blade reveals a few useful surprises in its military-grade, mildew-resistant package. A built-in fire starter rod sits snug in a watertight holder. Pair that with the cutout notch on the blade’s top edge and the ferrocerium rod produces a shower of fire-igniting sparks. A pull-through carbide sharpener is integrated into the sheath, so you can make sure your blade stays sharp. And, for refreshing your outdoor knowledge before things get dicey, a waterproof version of Bear’s “Priorities of Survival” Pocket Guide is stashed into the protective pocket on the back.
Surviving the unexpected is about being prepared, and the Bear Grylls Sheath Folder exceeds the standard. Few people know more about survival than Bear Grylls, ex-British Special Forces officer, experienced mountaineer and respected survival trainer. Taking advantage of Gerber’s decades of experience and Bear Grylls’ adventure knowledge, the Black FE Sheath Folder gives you the ability to engage with your surroundings in perpetual survival mode.
COMPACT SURVIVAL SECURITY
Built on the same platform as the original, the updated Bear Grylls Sheath Folder replaces its gray areas with a sleek black, both on the handle and the blade. Additionally, the blade itself receives an update with a full fine edge. Based on the Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife, it’s a sturdy one-hand opening folder. Its rubber handle is textured to stay in your hand, with dual thumb studs on the blade for quick opening. Its lockback mechanism keeps the knife securely open and securely closed.
ATTACH IT FOR CERTAINTY
The Bear Grylls Sheath Folder comes equipped with a low-profile sheath for lashing to a backpack or attaching to a belt. It has a lanyard hole for additional securing options. Included with this sturdy folder is Bear’s Priorities of Survival pocket guide.
A compact survival hatchet is worth its weight in lifesaving warmth and shelter. Especially when it weighs in at less than a liter of water, like the 1.4 pound. Bear Grylls Survival Hatchet designed by Gerber. The worse the weather gets, the more you’ll appreciate this sturdy little hatchet’s ability to turn out stacks of firewood or help you improvise a quick shelter.
SMALL BUT POWERFUL BLADE
Don’t let the compact size and slim profile of this hatchet fool you. With most of its heft concentrated in the head, it is definitely a tool that chops above its weight class. The 3.5-inch razor sharp blade is equally adept at limbing saplings as splitting logs. Combining Gerber’s decades of experience crafting tools with Bear Grylls’s adventure knowledge, the hatchet’s sturdy stainless steel, full-tang construction stands up to the hardest tasks.
ZERO SLIP GRIP
The rubberized handle fills your hand to create a lock-tight grip that won’t let go even when wet. And finger notches just below the head let you choke up securely on the axe for more precise control when feathering kindling or stripping bark. There’s also a handy hole at the base of the handle to attach a lanyard for an extra measure of safety.
DOUBLE DUTY HEAD
Opposite the blade, the back of the head features a crosshatched striking surface that can be used for all types of camp duties, from pounding tent stakes and straightening bent backpack stays to tenderizing meat.
When not in use, you can keep the blade sharp and safe inside its military-grade, mildew-resistant sheath, complete with loops that strap to your belt or pack. Plus, it comes with a copy of Bear’s “Priorities of Survival” Pocket Guide to help you focus your attention on the details that matter most when you are in a jam.
Encased in a smooth, hard plastic cover the Bear Grylls Knife Sharpener fits easily in your pocket. The handle is made of grippy rubber for secure holding in wet or cold conditions. Two rod shaped diamond-coated sharpeners allow you to sharpen the serrated sections of your knife. Coarse Carbide and Fine Ceramic inserts will get your fine edge blade in shape. Your Survival Series Field Sharpener will likely be the only one you’ll ever need.
